Top Ten Marvel Movies

Due to the upcoming release of Captain Marvel on March 8th, Kadin and I wanted to make our own list of The Top Ten Marvel Movies. With nearly 20 movies to choose from, we think it’ll be easy. Keep in mind that this list is based on our opinion and our list may not be the same as yours.

10. Guardians of the Galaxy 2Related image

This movie has some great special effects and has one of the best soundtracks in the MCU. The comedy is unlike many others and the characters really bring it together. My issue with this movie, as well and Ant-Man and The Wasp, is that it’s simply a filler movie with no real long-lasting consequences for what happens in this film. I don’t want to forget all of the great things in this movive but sadly it’s still not as memorable as some other entries in the MCU.

9. Ant-Man

The ability to change your size and see the environment changes your perspective of the world. This brings something unique to the table that not many other movies in the MCU can replicate. Paul Rudd as Ant-Man is a great character that is charismatic and humorous. Action scenes taking place on toy train sets and inside of a suitcase show the potential of this type of movie. This movie also suffers from not being as memorable as other titles.

8. Iron Man

Being the first movie in the MCU, it’s a great start to a franchise. Robert Downey Jr. is the perfect actor to portray Iron Man. His attitude and his direction with Iron Man are great. The action in this film is, while not on the scale of more recent titles, it’s still eye-catching and action-packed. The villain is pretty half baked and could use some work. All-in-all it’s a great movie.

7. Spider-Man: Homecoming

Tom Holland is the best perfect embodiment of Peter Parker and Spider-Man. Everyone knows who Spider-Man is and the film does a great job at giving us all the web-swinging action we’d want. We get a great coming of age story that has, in my opinion, a great villain. The only downside is that the movie doesn’t have the weight that other movies in this list have.

6. Thor Ragnarok

Thor Ragnarok is the best movie in the Thor franchise, although that isn’t saying much. The change in the Thor movies was drastic but it’s worth it in the end. With a comedic side to itself that embraces that it’s just a comic book movie, earns it a spot on this list. The action in this movie is grand with big arenas and bright colors. The style and pure comedy of this movie make it worth the watch.

5. Black Panther

Black Panther is the second highest grossing MCU movie just behind Avengers: Infinity War. A movie with so much hype that it hurts it. The story of Black Panther is great. A story of a king being overthrown and fighting his way back to take back his rightful throne. The special effects found aren’t the best but that doesn’t take away from its great story. This movie is probably one the most memorable movies of the MCU and it’s a great watch.

4. Doctor Strange

Doctor Strange is one of the most beautiful movies to watch. The mind-bending special effects make the action scenes a spectacle to watch. Fights taking place on kaleidoscope-like areas with infinite staircases and other “trippy imagery” makes this movie enjoyable and keeps the audience engaged. This was the first MCU movie to introduce magic into the expanded universe. It handles the ideas of magic incredibly well, giving us a lot of time to get familiar with what magic can do in these movies. Another great movie from the MCU.

3. Guardians of the Galaxy

Guardians of the Galaxy has the best soundtrack out of any in this list. The universe of this movie is truly out of this world. With characters like a giant tree man, voiced by Vin Diesel, and a talking raccoon, what’s not to love? The characters all work incredibly well together and it helps make this movie what it is. The directing of James Gunn makes this movie stand out against all of the other “space-action” movies. A color yet gritty setting with amazing shots of action mixed with comedy are great to watch. This is a great example of an origin story for the MCU.

2. Avengers

This movie was the first time the Avengers assembled on the big screen. The characters coming together to stop the forces of evil provide great action scenes and funny moments between characters. A story of a group of superheroes setting aside their differences and come together to save the world is an amazing concept. We hadn’t seen anything quite like this from Holywood and this is a great standard for all superhero movies. This is truly a comic book come to life.

1. Avengers: Infinity War

Avengers: Infinity War was the highest grossing MCU film of all time. This movie is one of the most ambitious movies of all time. A cast of over 60 heroes and a nearly 3-hour run time shows how this movie reaches the standards and then goes over them. A huge crossover of, at the time, 18 films was not an easy task but the directors make it look easy. Viewers are left in awe but its action set pieces and great visual effects. This movie deserves the number one spot for sure.
